Where would you rather educate your children? Mississippi or Idaho? Ridiculous question, right? The Magnolia State is America's perennial last-place finisher. As bleak as Idaho's prospects ever got, it could always count on Mississippi to bring up the rear.Except, it turns out, when it comes to spending money on its schools. On that score, it's the Gem State that is dangerously close to winning the dubious prize. Only Utah spends less per pupil. Moreover, those numbers don't take into account the decision of Idaho Gov. C. L. (Butch) Otter and the Republican-controlled Legislature to scale back public school spending by nearly $130 million this year/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune.
Question: Do you believe that the state of Idaho is too poor to spend more on education? Or too cheap?
